Candy Posted July 28, 2003 Share Posted July 28, 2003 Well, as much as you pray that you'll be posting in good news it doesn't always happen as we all know. We got the results of Hugh's scans and his facial numbness is definately the result of brain mets. SUCKS! He started radiation Friday and we felt somewhat better after talking to the radiation doctor who says there is about 75 percent success rate with radiation and other things that can be done if it doesn't work. I have to tell you though that I had a couple of melt downs. Hugh hates it when I cry and I try really hard not to. I just have this nagging voice telling me that he has finally been handed a death sentence. Not that the doctors are saying that. We saw the onocologist this morning for a consult. He says we will watch closely and try to put off the inevitable chemo for as long as possible so that Hugh has as long as possible to recover from his other chemo. I don't have great access to the computer right now. Too busy at work and then a rush at home as we have to go to get Hugh's radiation everyday after I get home. I will have trouble keeping up with everyone for the next couple of weeks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
